Prosecutors have charged a Riverdale man with beating his infant daughter over the course of a month.
The 25-year-old man was charged Friday in 2nd District Court with five counts of intentionally inflicting serious physical injury to a child. He could spend up to 15 years in prison for each count.
His 4-month-old daughter arrived Wednesday at Primary Children's Medical Center, where doctors discovered she had suffered bleeding in her brain, a broken collar bone, a broken rib, two separate fractures to her left leg and an internal hemorrhage, according to the charges. Several of the injuries were in the process of healing.
